Sub Focus has announced ‘Reworks’, a 10 track album of remixes for his early releases on Ram Records, reworked by some of his favourite D&B artists.
We’ve already had a teaser of what to expect from this remix package with the recent release of Culture Shock’s take on the Sub Focus anthem ‘Airplane’ which came out earlier this month, hotly followed by Dimension’s take on the classic ‘Timewarp’.
Those Early Sub Focus Tracks
Sub Focus’ rise to notoriety was steep & fast. A demo handed to Andy C via a friend launched Sub Focus’ career from bedroom producer obscurity, to securing his first few releases on Ram Records sister label Frequency back in 2003.
With a handful of killer Frequency releases under his belt, he got signed to the main Ram label in 2005 with the accomplished 12” single ‘X-Ray’ b/w ‘Scarecrow’. Both tracks absolute belters, regularly doing damage at the iconic Ram Records nights at The End club.
Self Titled Debut Album
As we know this first single on Ram was just the beginning of a very successful career. A string of hit singles followed ‘X-Ray’ including ‘Airplane’, ‘Druggy’, ‘Rock It’, and crowd favourite ‘Timewarp’, all of which were championed by the labels head honcho Andy C, and paved the way for the self titled debut album ‘Sub Focus’ in 2009.
In a career that has spanned almost 2 decades Sub Focus shows no sign of slowing down (Thankfully!). The last few months have seen the release of ‘Portals’ the collaborative album with Wilkinson, plus an epic tour of New Zealand alongside the likes of Dimension & Culture Shock.
Reworks Album Tracklist
Sub Focus posted on social media say that he’s “Managed to get some of (his) favourite D&B producers on this“. The Reworks album tracklist has been revealed and it’s fair to say he’s drafted in some serious A-list production talent to work their magic on his music. Here’s the full run down…
